1. The Aggies have run out of time at offensive line

Texas A&M hosts Alabama under the lights at Kyle Field next weekend. The Aggies are going to be massive under dogs to the Crimson Tide, and that’s no secret. It will be the sixth game of the year.

With nearly half of the season in the books and the heart of the SEC slate under way there is no excuse to still be clueless at the offensive line position. Offensive line coach Jim Turner has continued to shuffle his front five, that includes playing several true freshman. In an ideal world, those guys redshirt and have a year to build muscle and learn.

True freshman Dan Moore Jr., Carson Green and Robert Congel have all seen action. True freshman Jared Hocker and redshirt freshman Ryan McCollumn have both earned starts already this season.

These five trotted out for the first snap against South Carolina: Koda Martin, Ryan McCollum, Erik McCoy, Connor Lanfear, Keaton Sutherland. Whether or not the same five earn starts next week against the Tide is still up in the air. Regardless, Texas A&M needs to find their five starting offensive lineman and stick to them. Musical chairs up front won’t produce favorable results down the road.
